Best of 2015: Craig's Cake Shop & Pecatonica String Quartet

Craig's Cake Shop

Best Cake & Best Ceremony Music

Best Cake

Craig’s Cake Shop

Known for: Creating fresh, beautiful cakes in any flavor combination a couple can dream up.

Words of wisdom: Sampling wedding cakes is one of the perks of the planning process. At Craig’s Cake Shop, the staff wants to create a memorable cake that “guests will rave about long after the wedding,” says co-owner Becca Curran. They work with a couple on all of the details, she says, “to provide you with the wedding cake of your dreams.”


Best Ceremony Music

Pecatonica String Quartet

Known for: Providing just the right soundtrack for a special ceremony.

Words of wisdom: If a couple has unique musical tastes, Pecatonica String Quartet can abide and provide. Violinist Amber Dolphin says the music is only limited by a couple’s imagination. Their repertoire includes not only traditional wedding pieces, but also popular radio hits and “fun, quirky, cute stuff.” And if they don’t know a piece, “our violist can arrange it,” says Dolphin.
